That looks good, I would be very happy if mine turn out that well.

Do you have any pointers or advice on how to best do that job ?

Thanks,

I took the seats all the way apart and covered the old foam with 1/2 inch thick foam before installing the cover. And to make the covers went on smoothly I glued some grocery bags on the corners of the foams with spray glue! That made the covers slide on smoothly.
Also while you are at it clean out any rust in the bottom metal pan then use rust neutralizer prior to giving it a good coat of paint, mine was rusted out pretty bad!

The upholstery set I bought from Centerline a few years ago was essentially identical, down to the price, although I can't specifically speak to the ones offered on eBay. I took mine to an upholstery shop and had them professionally fitted. I was pleased with the outcome.

I agree with Saniel that you will want to clean, rustproof, and repaint the seat pans (and in my case the springs too) while everything is apart.The seat foam holds humidity, or worse, and you will at least have some surface rust at the interface of the pans and the seat-bottom foam.
